Hot Cereals: Can They Be Scrumptious?

Perilagu Khan | Jan 25, 2013 09:48 AM

I regularly eat hot cereals for breakfast, not because I like to but because I feel like I should (gunning for a blast o' fiber, dontchaknow). Oatmeal, I find vaguely offputting what with its pallor and its slimy texture. Wheatina--the Khantessa, God love her, brought some down from Pennsylvania--is a bit unremitting. Almost like something the Cheka would serve to Siberian prisoners in 1933, although I rate it a minor improvement over oatmeal.

So is there any hope? Are there any hot cereals tasty enough that you actually look forward them? Can you doctor them up to actually make them attractive to the palate?
